Alpha 05:38
Good morning, wake up, go to school Wear your blazer as is the rule Watch the teacher teach you sums Slowly wake until break time comes A prison life, feudal system like Must find a smaller boy to strike But he'll just go and tell on you Teachers don't know what you go through Is there more to life than this? So many classes you try to miss Same old things on same old days Fear mixed with a quiet malaise Good morning, wake up, go to work Another downtrodden office clerk Keep your head down, get it done Take a cigarette for a glimpse of sun Lunch time quickly comes and goes Deep in spreadsheets, time moves slow Colleagues pipe up, nothing new Just "Did you get that thing I sent you?" Is there more to life than this? Sales targets and client lists Same old things on same old days Boredom mixed with a quiet malaise There's more in store for you Stop dreaming about what life can bring Set your thinking on higher things Find something worth living for There's no reason not to explore Is there more to life than this? Is there more to life than this? Is there more to life than this? Is there more to life than this?

Swept Away 03:22
The storm rages Rain flies down Shaking the trees Breaking the leaves The wind flurries So furiously Wind sweep me up And take me away Maybe we'll crash into exotic lands Maybe we'll find new undiscovered worlds Then fall into somewhere new Better than where we've been before The riptide pulls us Far from the shore We must stay grounded Or drift too far The weathered rocks Falling apart Show what we'll be When the time will come Maybe we'll crash into exotic lands Maybe we'll find new undiscovered worlds Then fall into somewhere new Better than where we've been before (I will get swept away, I'll let myself get swept away) Maybe we'll crash into exotic lands Maybe we'll find new undiscovered worlds Then fall into somewhere new Better than where we've been before Maybe we'll crash into exotic lands Maybe we'll find new undiscovered worlds Then fall into somewhere new Better than where we've been before

City Living 02:44
Wound up in city living Never see the light Just try to keep up with The pace of daily life Flickers past so fast so quick that If you blink then you will miss it Bogged down in city living And dreams of greener fields Lunch break and a coffee cup Is all your harvest yields Flickers past so fast so quick that If you blink then you will miss it Running out of sense and money Wait to see that match being lit Burn down my city Burn it to the ground Life wastes in terror Waiting for the day The day when they will Burn this city down You're lost in city living In someone's disguise Nothing like what you foresaw In your young childs eyes Flickers past so fast so quick that If you blink then you will miss it Running out of sense and money Wait to see that match being lit Burn down my city Burn it to the ground Life wastes in terror Waiting for the day The day when they will Burn this city Burn down my city Burn it to the ground Life wastes in terror Waiting for the day The day when they will Burn this city Waiting for the day The day when they will Burn this city down

Snow Angel 05:29
I will not taint the world with blood Wanting to end my life Is no reason to hurt myself With razor or with knife I will not be a grotesque puppet Twirling in the breeze No need to make a spectacle To haunt my family's dreams I will not taint my blood with drugs For when I meet my end I wish to keep my senses clear Not into dreams descend And so the morning beckons me So clear and crisp with snow The winter bites my tears back As through the trees I go And lay down by the frozen lake Lie in the frozen snow And fully conscious, fully sure And peacefully I go Into oblivion So clear, pure and cold Into that new transcendency Beyond what's tainted, old A clean death, simple, painless, swift A shiver in the dark Leaving just an imprint A snow angel in the park I'm a snow angel Just a snow angel Nothing left of me Nothing needs to be Nothing left to invite tears Nothing left to heighten fears Nothing left to hurt my friends Nothing but this calming end Snow angel Just a snow angel Nothing left of me Just how I want to be

Sweet Dreams 03:52
Sleep sweet dreams Find a better world Sleep sweet dreams Safety in refuge This world it overflows with fear Keeps our minds from being clear There's still one place they can't control So train your mind, don't let it go Treasure your memory, treasure your mind Take time to relax and unwind Sleep sweet dreams To breathe a calmer air Sleep sweet dreams It's always peaceful there We have freedom from media lies How they like to sensationalise Our lives really aren't bad at all We'll learn to stand and not to crawl Treasure your memory, treasure your mind Take time to relax and unwind Sleep sweet dreams To breathe a calmer air Sleep sweet dreams It's always peaceful there Sleep sweet dreams And keep them close to you Sleep sweet dreams What if your best came true?

Laura plays life like a game The rulebook lost so long ago Just everyday she rolls the die She's set her strategy Takes her piece and move it backwards I think she's just afraid to win She won't know anymore Why she turns back the score She's just so stuck in her mistakes that she adores All her life she's playing Spot the deliberate mistakes Stuck the gears in reverse And tore apart the brakes So I'll be here praying One day she just admits when she goes wrong She won't feel a need to change Her boyfriend sits and stares in wonder Loving all her flaws Human beings weren't built that way We're designed to grow and flourish We just stagnate when we don't change It's time to realise The things she should despise But she's still so afraid she'll fail if she tries All her life she's playing Spot the deliberate mistakes Stuck the gears in reverse And tore apart the brakes So I'll be here praying One day she just admits when she goes wrong She just admits when she goes wrong She goes wrong... She goes wrong... Wrong... Wrong... Wrong...

The working week is done I had some lazy days, far too many I don't want to leave my house There's nothing out there for me I don't want to live in lethargy The stress just gets to me I'm not proud and I'm not happy It pains me when I have to say I slept through Sunday I slept through Sunday I slept through Sunday I wonder if they notice me Their perpetual absentee I hope they'd care or wish they'd call 'cause otherwise I mean nothing at all I don't want to live in lethargy The stress just gets to me I'm not proud and I'm not happy It pains me when I have to say I slept through Sunday I slept through Sunday I slept through Sunday It wasn't choice Or some desire To just stay in I never wanted To be living On a death from within My week has failed And I can't bear To let it sink in This sign of a life being wasted I slept through Sunday I slept through Sunday I slept through Sunday

Trust 04:32
As much I'd like it not to be Life has made it clear to me Some people live by human nature When instincts rule and logic's cursed It's not so hard to be coerced Even when you know how wrong you are Trust in mortal man is broken Trust in feelings slips away Trusting God has something better Is all that keeps me going Trusting you has got me nowhere Trust me I've had better times Trust that you would be the one Never to be the one I hoped you'd be I know feelings have their failings I find feelings often flailing This can't be news to anyone Yet some perceive emotions truth Gripping to this plight of youth Holding back from growing up at all Trust in mortal man is broken Trust in feelings slips away Trusting God has something better Is all that keeps me going Trusting you has got me nowhere Trust me I've had better times Trust that you would be the one Never to be the one I hoped you'd be We cannot grow We cannot go Living on instinct alone Man knows he's more Man knows he's for Life based on knowing the truth We cannot grow We cannot go Living on instinct alone Man knows he's more Man knows he's for Life based on knowing the truth We cannot grow We cannot go Living on instinct alone Man knows he's more Man knows he's for Life based on knowing the truth We cannot grow We cannot go Living on instinct alone Man knows he's more Man knows he's for Life based on knowing the truth

In despair I sit alone Head resting in my withered hands Nothing will console me Here I sit On the threshold of eternity The only sound I hear The crackling in my fireplace Quieter, less frequent It fades into blackness Here I sit On the threshold of eternity Nobody sees what's inside A damaged floorboard, dirty walls Once the flame goes out Neither will I see myself Here I sit Trapped opposed to love and joy A mind succumbed to apathy Tomorrow will not come for me Here I sit On the threshold of eternity Try to remember when I felt Some simple kind of pleasure A happy world cannot meet me Here I sit On the threshold of eternity Lost appetite and cannot sleep More time awake in life so bleak If sleep will not come to me ... Here I sit On the threshold of eternity Here I sit Here I wait Here I... Here I... Here I... Here I... Here I sit Here I rest Here I wait Here I sit Here I rest Here I wait Here I sit Here I rest Here I wait Who can save me now? And who can save me now? And who can save me now? So here I sit On the threshold of eternity And who can save me now? Who can save me now? Who can save me now? 'Cause here I sit On the threshold of eternity

Waterfall 04:26
Come out from the cave See the sunlight shine through the water curtain This is what you crave Live a life of freedom, stay alive forever Must stop Must sit Take it in Bathe in the waterfall Bathe in the waterfall A momentary pleasure then toward the light To saturate yourself in eternal bliss Look up to the skies Drenching your face in the living waters And then rub your eyes Enjoying blurry pictures of sun-soaked fields Must stop Must sit Take it in Bathe in the waterfall Bathe in the waterfall A momentary pleasure then toward the light To saturate yourself in eternal bliss This life, it has its pleasures But this life is momentary I know our real dwelling place Stretches out forever just beyond So come Walk out Live free Live long Run far To life True life Bathe in the waterfall Bathe in the waterfall A momentary pleasure then toward the light To saturate yourself in eternal bliss Bathe in the waterfall Bathe in the waterfall A momentary pleasure then toward the light To saturate yourself in eternal bliss

The Gardener 05:04
I am the gardener I put the plants in their soil Water them every day So soon I'll enjoy their fruit I am the gardener I keep the bugs off the flowers Insecticides on the leaves So they can hold their own I am the gardener I made a beautiful garden Sometimes I like to sit Admiring the things that grow He is my gardener He's working hard to sustain me He gives to me every day All that I need to survive He is my gardener And I bear fruit just to please him I'm pleased to give to him 'Cause he gave my life to me
